I am using Netscape Navigator 4 (on Mac). I periodically receive email messages with attachments in the MS-TNEF format. What do I need to do to see and/or open these attachments?

Hi, varsitygold.

MS-TNEF is the Internet MIME decoding classification for a Rich Text Format document. RTF documents can be read with Microsoft Word for Macintosh or other word processor that understands RTF.

To make your browser open the attachments, click on the Edit menu and select Preferences. Click the Applications option. There is probably a listing for Rich Text Format there, but the option only saves the file to disk. Click the Edit button and have Navigator open Word or other program when the file is saved to disk. (For brevity's sake, I didn't go into this in detail--Netscape's help file can help you do this step by step.) That's it.  Good luck. --KS
